Cathy Swanson works as the Western Territory Sales Manager for Purolite Americas. Her primary area of focus is in the groundwater market. Being a leader on the Purolite’s Sales team requires hard work and forward-thinking. Cathy has a few goals in mind. She would like to double the territory in 2021 as well as revolutionize nitrate treatment with SST resin. “I want to see our PFAS resin become the primary treatment for PFAS in California,” Cathy stated.

This goes to show why Joe Klimek nominated her for Employee of the Month. “Cathy is always going the extra mile, whether it’s chairing PFAS Steering Committee, developing new technical literature, or sharing her expertise in potable and groundwater applications,” Joe stated in his nomination form.

Cathy’s favorite part about the company is the comradery and support that it provides. “Purolite has an open and accepting culture and is very inclusive,” she notes. Cathy also mentioned that she loves the technical support that is available as well as support from management to help grow the territory. In Cathy’s free time, she enjoys traveling (which has been difficult this year due to the safety restrictions implemented during the pandemic). She has kept herself busy working on her MBA, which is nearly complete!

Thank you, Cathy, for being a hard-working, dedicated employee – you make Purolite a better company. Congratulations!
